Tuesday papers highlighted Monday night football game –
Norwich City 3 Nottingham Forest 1
Norwich climbed to the top of the FA Premier League with two late goals at Carrow Road. Irish under-21 striker Lee Power put them ahead in the 77th minute, then midfielder David Phillips sealed victory with his fourth of the season in the last minute. It was Forest’s fourth consecutive defeat following their victory over Liverpool on the first weekend of the season their worst start since Brian Clough took charge in 1975.
Other headlines on this day provided key injury updates of premier league teams before matches later in the day – Winger John Hendrie lost his battle to be fit for Middlesbrough’s clash with Ipswich Town at Ayresome Park later that night.
Robbie Mustoe was expected to keep his place in an unchanged team, though manager Lennie Lawrence could revert to a 4-3-3 formation. Boro record signing Derek Whyte has been named in the Scotland squad for the trip to Switzerland next week but Lawrence was disappointed that there was no place for Willie Falconer. He said: “I’m pleased for Whyte but I had hoped that Falconer would make it as well. “Perhaps his chance will come later. I have spoken to the Scottish people and they are aware of him.”
